By: Rebecca Margolis (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Looking at Montreal's Jewish community during the first half of the twentieth century, Margolis explores the lives and works of activists, writers, scholars, performers, and organizations that fuelled a still-thriving community. She also considers the foundations and development of Yiddish cultural life in Montreal in its interaction with broader issues of diasporic Jewish culture. An illuminating look at the ways in which Yiddish culture was maintained in North America, Jewish Roots, Canadian Soil is the story of how a minority culture was transplanted and transformed.
Rebecca Margolis is an associate professor in the Vered Jewish Canadian Studies Program at the University of Ottawa.
